Health & Safety Enhancements
Children in a hybrid learning classroom in the Christina School District
We take the health and safety of our students and our employees very seriously and will be closely monitoring each of our buildings as students and staff return to Hybrid Learning. In order to ensure our schools are safe, we have added to our existing protective measures by implementing additional health and safety protocols in all of our schools.
